Your Frozen Beard!

Dear Mr. Dave,

My name is Amanda. I am 11 years old but I will be 12 next year. How are you doing? I am fine. Was it fun to take the training. What did you do to get your beard unfrozen? Did you go snow blind? What was the dehyrated dinner you had? Is the snow there alright to eat? Did you ever get cold at night? Why didn't your tents blow over? I bet that coffee was good for the time it was warm. You could have poured the coffee in a pot and boiled it. The would have warmed it up. Right? If you did not have that injury would you have gone down in the crevasse? Did you get to keep your ice axes? Well, I have to go...BYE!!!!!!!


Dear Mr. Dave,

Hi, I just had my birthday 11 days age and now I am 12 years old. Is carring all og the stuff with you heavy? How many people can the tent hold? How cold is it now? How cold does it get down there? We are called for anouther snow storm this weekend. A small one. Nothing like the one we just had. How many people does the Hagland hold? How fast does it go? When you hit the bump with you butt, did it hurt? Well, I have to go!! BYE!!

Your friend always,

P.S. Please write back soon!!
